The update on the 36-year-old star comes shortly after it was revealed that Depp, 59, filed an appeal in the lawsuit. As OK! reported, the jury ruled in Heard’s favor on one account of defamation and awarded her $2 million. However, since the alleged defamatory statement was made by his attorney Adam Waldman, Depp feels he shouldn’t be responsible for the payout.
The mom-of-one had already filed an appeal not long after the court case concluded on June 1. She also let go of lawyer Elaine Bredehoft and hired two new attorneys, David L. Axelrod and Jay Ward Brown.
